The AIDS Project of Central Iowa offers services to individuals in Central Iowa living with HIV/AIDS as well as educational services to the larger community. They offer personalized, direct care for affected and at risk individuals including free testing and safer sex/injection supplies.
Their interns are usually students interested in careers in Social Work or Public Health Administration. However, much of their work focuses on education and the tracking of HIV/AIDS medicine. Therefore, they also offer 1-2 Pharmacy Internships per semester.
The AIDS Project of Central Iowa serves the entire Central Iowa population but their clients include a high number of foreign born individuals and refugees, primarily from Northern and Western Africa and Latin America. They are always seeking translators for African languages.
